To determine which policy is generating this setting, you can use the Resultant Set of Policy (RSoP) on the local computer.

To run the Resultant Set of Policy (RSoP).

1. On a workstation, Start -> Run -> MMC.EXE and press Enter.

2. In MMC.EXE; Go to File -> Add/Remove Snap-In.

3. Choose Resultant Set of Policy from the list, click Add and OK.

Before you add the snap-in.After you add the snap-in.

4. Right click on Resultant Set of Policy and choose 'Generate RSoP data'.

5. This will launch a wizard. Choose all of the defaults (Logging Mode, This computer, Current user).

If you want the quick and dirty solution, though, you can change the associated registry key value to override this setting.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess\Parameters\FirewallPolicy\<Firewall Profile>\EnableFirewall

Where <Firewall Profile> is StandardProfile, DomainProfile and/or PublicProfile.  Change the EnableFirewall appropriately; 0 <Disabled> -or- 1 <Enabled>

Hello,

Create a GPO and set under Computer Config > Administrative Templates > Network > Network connections > Windows Firewall > Domain Profile  > Windows Firewall: Protect all network connections = Disabled

After that, start the client machine or Start > Run > CMD > Gpupdate /force.

Thanks,

All firewall policies exist in two places, and will depend on how they work based on how you have your policies defined..

1. Computer Configuration>Policies>Windows Settings>Security>Windows firewall with advanced security..>
From there you have the choice of rules In/Out and you have connection security Rules you can define.

2. Computer Configuration>Policies>Security Settings>System Services
About 15 items from the bottom you have an area you can define if the firewall is on or off based on service.

Keep in mind that in windows 2k8 the security built into the clients/Vista would disable remote access if the firewall was turned off, and the RDP sessions were not defined as allowed before turning off the firewall service.
